Why electrticity smart meters are such a dangerous idea

Post by Tony Bennett on 11.11.12 11:19

The news from the EU front becomes ever more bizarre.

Last Wednesday, just before Angela Merkel flew to London to tell David Cameron how desperately she wants Britain to stay in the EU, she told the European Parliament:

“Of course the European Commission will one day become a government, the European Council a second chamber and the European Parliament will have more powers – but for now we have to focus on the euro and give people a little more time to come along.”

In other words, the EU is still on track to become precisely that “government of Europe” that Jacques Delors was boasting
about in 1989
(to which Mrs Thatcher famously responded “No, no, no”).

In the meantime Mrs Merkel and her eurozone colleagues are hell-bent on getting the new treaty they imagine is necessary to save their doomed euro, and from which Britain will be excluded. So she wants Britain to remain part of an EU from whose inner ring we will be excluded, but she hopes that this will give us “a little more time” to come to our senses and join the euro – thus signing up to the full package, including the idea that the unelected Commission should be our supreme government.

Does Mr Cameron really have any idea of what a far-reaching game he is caught up in?


Another story last week – with the headline “We need wind farms to power electric cars, says Cameron” – may make
us wonder.


On the face of it, nothing could seem dottier than putting these two huge blunders together: the fanciful belief that we can somehow provide a third of our electricity from unreliable windmills; and the quixotic enthusiasm for electric cars which, despite hefty subsidies, remain so unpopular that their UK sales have fallen this year to just 749.

Mr Cameron’s faith in these vehicles is just as absurd as his plan, confirmed again last week by an energy minister, Baroness Verma, that every home and business in Britain must be fitted with “smart meters” within seven years, at a cost of £11 billion.

What few have yet realised is that all these schemes are part of a grand EU design for our future which even now is being tested on the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic (check out EcoGrid and Bornholm on the internet).

The point about smart meters is that they do not only enable us consumers to keep tabs on our electricity use:
they also (though our Government does not like to spell this out) enable suppliers to exercise remote control over how much electricity we use. The EU knows that the windmills it wants to see covering Europe are unpredictably intermittent, and cannot guarantee sufficient power when it is needed.


The answer the EU’s technocrats dream of, as we see from the Bornholm pilot project for a “European supergrid”, is that they can use smart meters to micro-manage the power we receive, right down to their ability to switch off whole categories of electricity use in our homes when there is insufficient power in the grid (what they call “ 'intelligent’ control of household appliances” , such as dishwashers or televisions).

But the windmills can also produce too much electricity when there is no demand – which is where electric cars come in. The idea of the EU grand designers is that we shall all be charging up our car batteries at night, to soak up the surplus power generated by windmills at times when demand is low – to keep the grid stable without needing to balance it from “carbon” emitting gas and coal-fired power stations.

All this is so fiendishly ingenious that one suspects Mr Cameron has been talked into promoting it without any real idea of what he has got caught up in.


But equally this applies to his wish for Britain to remain part of an EU that is following Mrs Merkel’s dream of a single all-powerful government, over which we would have even less influence than we do now.

I've just watched the remembrance ceremony at the Cenotaph. As the gun went off at the first stroke of Big Ben on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month a bang went off in my community in synch at the beginning of the two minute silence and at the end. There wasn't a sound in my road. No vehicles drove past. Lest we forget.

No, no, no to an all powerful European government. No, no, no.

Amen to that, but lets remember that the Treaty of Rome always intended for there to be a European superstate, but our politicians have lied to us for decades about this, selling the whole shebang as helping us with our trade, conveniently forgetting to tell us about the not so small print.

No, no, no to an all powerful European government. No, no, no.

O come on! It'll just be like old times, with Tony Blair as president and Cherie as First , well first something. beware

The French have gone back to their first principles of Liberty, Fraternity and Agriculture. The Germans have a hold on France without having to invade it again. Incidentally the Dutch aren't happy either and the government isn't willing to pay the increase demanded by the apparatchniks in Brussels.
So unlike it was reported in the papers, quite a few other members aren't willing to pay the increase either.

There was no print at all ... I happen to know from reliable sources within the EC that they all signed blank papers, as the copies of the real document didn't reach Rome in time and the "show" had to go on laughat

But the print was there by the time Ted Heath took us into this current mess.
